cohen for the position of the presidency of the board of supervisors. as many of you know, it's been 13 years since we have been able to nominate a woman. malia and i both came on this position at the same time if you years ago, and i know how hard malia work to get here and how hard she worked in the field. she has demonstrated a lot of leadership in the last two years. i want to say that this process has been very heartwarming for me to go through over the last three days. i've had a lot of great conversations with many of my colleagues and what i have learned in this time is that we have a lot of great leaders on this board and a lot of great individuals that could be president for this board and so this nomination is not set in the way that takes that away from anyone else. i think that given the historic nature of not having had a woman lead this board i want to put forth malia today. i want to say couple of things about malia. should represent a district that we talk a lot about. she leads and represents a portion of the city that faces some of the most intractable is
on the finishes are brought to her and she would make a wonderful board president. and supervisor cohen, she's a great woman, always smiling, and i like that. we need a woman. it's time for a woman president to sit up there. and see what she can do. i'm hoping that she will consider, supervisor kim, and my second choice would be supervisor cohen. i would like to see by district supervisor become board president. take that into consideration, two great nominations. >> president: next speaker. >> my name is francisco dacosta. is not too often in these chambers that we have city department heads, other people that really love the city gathered together. the constitution of this great nation if you have read the constitution, the first pages call for morals, call for standards, and compassion. now some of us come over here from time to time to address the board of supervisors. in this election, to choose a president of the board of supervisors or even to be a supervisor that represents you have to serve the people. and in the last year, it's very sad to day that we are seeing every time pe

is peter cohen, with the council committee organizations -- look forward to work with this body this year. look forward to working with him and the rest of you all. we have seen the transportation issues increasingly are embedded in the much broader and more complex set of issues around community and economic development; it has pulled affordable housing into the conversation more often than not and i think it is important that we start to move towards a dialogue around transportation, whether it's infrastructure, ridership, the future of the system that thinks holistically about the communities being served in the relationship to jobs, housing. i think this is if you will a more contemporary frame. at the regional level we have been quite active. the conversation of how to do "smart growth" is still right, not a recipe off the shelf. doing also equitable transportation development is also a puzzle. this body continues to be a leader in helping to figure out that puzzle without necessarily having all the answers. we continue to be ahead of the curve; this bodies an excellent place,

about any measure, steve cohen is a financial superstar, amazing success at picking stocks has made him one of the richest, most powerful stars on wall street. now his reputation and his empire may be in jeopardy. a federal criminal investigation appears to have him in the crosshairs. whenever the stock market is open, you usually can find steve cohen here, at the center of the football field-sized trading floor in connecticut, home to his hedge fund. for almost two decades, he has wracked up 20% to 30% annual return for his investors, losing money only one year, leading one magazine to dub him the most brilliant hedge fund manager alive. >> he is viewed as one of the top, top traders that has ever, ever worked on wall street. >> reporter: and does he live large, worth about $9 billion, he owns this lavish estate with a 36,000-square hp foot house and holes for golf. his art collection is valued at almost $1 billion, with works by van gogh and andy warhol. >> the edge he has gotten is not just from his own insight but perhaps from other means that are not legal. >> reporter: so far, fed

after you see how many calories are packed into some popular restaurants. elizabeth cohen is live in atlanta. how many calories are we talking about? >> an enormous amount. in one dish, you're getting calories should you get in an entire day. i think americans expect fast food is high caloried. i think you don't get that even in a nice restaurant, sometimes you're getting even more calories. take a look at two dishes. this one right here is cheesecake factory he's bistro shrimp pasta. 3120 calories. >> did you say 3,000? >> yes. that's a 3. yes, you heard that right. and you're supposed to get about 2200 calories a day. so it's way more than you're supposed to have in an entire day. as a matter of fact, that one dish is the equivalent calorie-wise of 5 1/2 big macs. you would never sit down and eat 5 1/2 big macs, but that's what's in this dish. and let me show you another one. this is called veal porter house and crispy red potatoes and that has 2710 calories. again, more than you're supposed to have in an entire day. it is the equivalent of three pints of ben and juerry's ice cr
